NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- I recently wrote an article about why I thought BlackBerry's (BBRY) management was a joke, bound to fail and making a huge mistake. While management might be making the right move, it's for the wrong reasons, or at least the ones provided.
Thorsten Heins, the CEO of BlackBerry, said, "In five years I don't think there'll be a reason to have a tablet anymore."
Wow. That's a pretty brash statement to make, especially for a company clearly failing in that segment of mobile devices. I could see if Heins said that and BlackBerry didn't have its Playbook tablet.
